Getting the right amount of protein can literally change your life.
Your stress, sleep, mood, cravings, hunger, fat loss, muscle gain, metabolism, and SO MUCH MORE are effected by your protein intake.
Here is a calculator to help you figure out how much is ideal for you, and a window if the ideal number doesn't quite fit your lifestyle.
1) Fill out Gender and Weight
3) Enter how much you work out
4) Set your goal to fat loss or muscle gain
5) The calculator give you your upper and lower range, and your ideal intake based on your goals
How the f*** are you supposed to get this much protein. Don't worry, I wrote a blog post on that here.
Supplements like the right Whey Protein can help get you there without the added calories, sugars, and most fats. You can check out my no bulls*** supplement research guide to learn more about protein and other supplements.
A few final notes...
Your ideal protein intake is based off of your lean body mass, activity level, and goals to give you an optimal number to aim for.
That being said...
Your life is much more complex than any calculator can measure. If you put effort into hitting that goal and after a few weeks feel like it is an impossible number to hit, aim for the lower end of the range.
